repose
by Gail Goepfert

breeze-tousled leaves
q u a k e
like spangles on a gypsy skirt

the windswept woods
dressed for autumnís ball
undressed by sleepís seduction
by the breath of windís whispered desire

bereft of color
frivolity and delay
the trees
their dance cards spent

pose one last time
for winterís canvas

a still lifeĖ
ebony silhouettes
against an ivory sky
